The retinohypothalamic tract (RHT) is a neural pathway through which photic time cues are delivered directly to the mammalian circadian pacemaker in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). Although the excitatory amino acid glutamate is the primary neurotransmitter in the RHT, other substances such as substance P (SPq also have been suggested to play a role. The(More)
Previous ultrastructural studies indicating a higher number of axoaxonic contacts on individual low-threshold mechanoreceptive afferents in the principalis (Vp) than in the oralis (Vo) of cat trigeminal sensory nuclear complex (TSNC) suggest that the synaptic microcircuitry associated with primary afferents manifests unique differences across the sensory(More)
